Worrisome HeartMusic CD - 2008
Melody Gardot was disabled at 19, after being struck by a car while riding her bicycle. This event, though tragic, led to her recognition as a remarkable musician. Her first full-length album, a follow-up to the EP Some Lessons, is entitled Worrisome Heart. The album features 11 original songs written by Melody Gardot and was co-produced by both Grammy-award-winning producer Glenn Barratt and Melody Gardot. Performers on the album include not only the trio that accompanies her live, but also an impressive cast of musicians such as guitarist Jef Lee Johnson (Billy Joel, George Duke, Aretha Franklin, David Sandborn), organist Joel Bryant (Aretha Franklin, Harry Connick Jr.), and trumpeter Matt Cappy (Jill Scott, Kirk Franklin).
